Love Your Mother (Earth)
April 5 – 26, 2014
Reception, Saturday, April 5, 6-8 pm
Love Your Mother (Earth), an exhibit related to environmental issues at The Drawing Studio in Tucson, Arizona Look back at the past and you see the beauty of what was this earth. Look into the future; what endures; what is lost? Look in the mirror and you see how human activity can affect both, for good or ill.
The Love Your Mother (Earth) exhibit at The Drawing Studio assembles artists’ responses to the changing conditions on our earth. Whether artists depict the effects of climate change, promote sustainability or conservation, each medium in the exhibit represents an impassioned interpretation and is sure to evoke a thoughtful reaction.
While one mission of The Drawing Studio, a non-profit arts organization, is to teach the skills of visual literacy, another is to encourage and nurture artistic practice through exhibition. Exhibits, therefore, may encompass timely issues in the broad community as well as among artists. The Love Your Mother (Earth) exhibit intersects art and reality, a mission worthy of any arts organization. You will have the opportunity to add your voice—in the form of pledges, art statements, or photos—to the issue of the changing conditions on our earth when you attend the Love Your Mother (Earth) exhibit at The Drawing Studio.
